Abstract

Recycle Aggregate Concrete (RCA) is the concrete product produced with recycled aggregate to replace part or whole of natural aggregate. The purpose of this study is to find the properties of RCA and compare the same with the concrete produced with natural aggregates2 Recycle Concrete Aggregate has also been described as “the most revolutionary development in concrete construction for several decades”. It has proved to be beneficial from the point of economic, environmental benefits and Preservation of non renewable recourses This thesis presents a study conducted on mechanical and durability properties of recycled aggregates concrete. The investigation covered concrete mixes at water cementitious material with ratio of 0.4. Ordinary Portland Cement of 43-grade was used in this study. The percentage of recycled aggregates that partially replaced natural aggregates by weight were 0%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50%. Concrete cubes and cylinders were casted and tested in laboratories. The optimum proportion of replacement was found by conducting tests on mechanical properties like Compressive strength test and Split tensile strength test. The results show that the optimum replacement of recycled aggregates with natural aggregates was 30%. Up to 30% replacement, it is possible to gain the same strength as conventional concrete. Beyond 30% replacement the strength results following decreasing trend
